HC Deb 09 February 1998 vol 306 c56W
Mr. Jenkins

To ask the Chairman of the Catering Committee what steps the Refreshment Department is taking to support the British beef industry. [28709]

Mr. Dennis Turner

I am pleased to advise my hon. Friend that the Refreshment Department will be showing its support for the British beef industry by celebrating "British Beef Week" with a promotion of British beef in its cafeterias and in the Members' Dining Room during the week commencing 16 February 1998. A 'pledge' book will be provided in the Dining Room to enable all hon. Members to indicate their individual support for the industry.
